The Armada Whiskey Collection launches ‘The Locals’
A tribute to the cultural importance of the local surfing community at Spanish Point
 Mon 9th May 2022

Armada Hotel, Lough Ree Distillery and renowned local surf photographer David Olsthoorn have collaborated for a very exciting new whiskey - The Locals. The fine single malt Irish whiskey is a tribute to the surf community’s talents, energy and significance to their locality. The launch has an accompanying photographic exhibition on display in the Ocean Bar at the Armada.

Spanish Point, Co Clare is a place steeped in notable maritime history dating back to 1588. In more recent times, the local surfing community have dominated the shoreline. They know every break and reef better than any and have provided endless hours of fascination for visitors to the Armada Hotel.

The Locals is available exclusively in the Armada Hotel, and the Irish Pub Namche Bazar, Nepal, the highest pub in the world, at the foothills of the Himalayas and a place that holds very special memories for the Armada’s Managing Director John Burke who was the first man from Clare to summit Mount Everest in May 2017. No doubt it will be a very welcome ‘deoch’ for those that make it that far and a poignant reminder of home.

The Locals retails at €70 for a 700ml bottle and can purchased online from the Armada Pantry.
